BOTOX is one of the most popular facial injections on the cosmetic market to soften wrinkles and rejuvenate the face. When the purified botulinum toxin type A is injected into the skin, it serves as a relaxing agent, allowing the facial muscles to temporarily stop contracting and the wrinkles to subside. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Suzman offers this treatment at WESTMED Group's Westchester County, NY office as an effective way to help reduce his patient's wrinkles and restore youthfulness back into their skin. Tighter, fuller, and smoother skin can last for up to 2-4 months following a BOTOX injection, though results will vary in every patient.

"I never had surgery before, so I was extremely nervous to have a breast reduction. I was also worried about my recovery. Dr Suzman, Heather, and the rest of the staff were extremely caring and assured me everything was going to be ok. Everything wasn’t just ok it was amazing! My reduction was everything I wanted and more and I was able to recover quickly and enjoy the rest of my summer! I highly recommend Dr Suzman for he has forever changed my life for the better.

The best candidates for BOTOX injections are in good health who show the following signs:
- Dynamic wrinkles
- Smile and/or frown lines
- Lines around the eyes ("crow’s feet")
What to Expect
The doctor will look at the quantity, depth, and location of your dynamic wrinkles to mark the areas of the muscles of the face that will be treated. With an ultra-fine syringe, BOTOX will be carefully injected into the marked areas. Most patients report mild discomfort when the needle pierces the skin, but numbing creams and cold compresses can be used to make your treatment more comfortable.
Besides some swelling and redness for 3 – 4 hours, you should be able to return to your regular activities after the injection. We encourage all of our BOTOX patients to avoid exercise for 24 hours and to sleep upright the first night after the treatment. Complete results after BOTOX are visible (smoother forehead and diminished wrinkles) in about 5 – 7 days. Many patients feel that BOTOX treatments make their skin look radiant, they feel younger, and look well rested.
